It’s been a month since I last got to sit down at the computer, but boy has it been a busy month!
First, Charley the dog found his forever family! One more puppy saved!
Then, we took an 11 day trip back “home” to Connecticut- and New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. We rented a car and drove 941 miles throughout the four states so that we could see (almost) everyone we’ve been missing.
I got home just in time for a bad cold to strike, which of course my children now have.
Right now we are in the middle of the Jewish holidays, and much as I love this time of year, almost an entire month without the kids in school is seriously draining!
But the super-good news is that we bought a new house. It still has to be built, but they are projecting a June move-in. The most exciting part for my husband? I will have my own craft room so that the living room, dining room and our bedroom can return to being just that- a living room, dining room and bedroom without being covered in sewing projects!
So, today, in between trips to the orthodontist, doctor and waiting for the exterminator (who showed up while I was typing the word- how odd!), I managed to sneak in a little sewing (finally!)
The back of my brother’s wormhole quilt is finally done! And I just started a new disappearing nine patch for my aunt and uncle. After the holidays, we can get out the big table and I can attempt to baste my brother’s quilt and that red, white and blue one. Maybe I’ll even have my aunt’s ready in time to be basted as well!
